Toy and model train collectors and enthusiasts will enjoy a two-day train show at the Lake County Fairgrounds on Saturday, Nov. 26 and Sunday, Nov. 27. The show will be open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 26, and from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 27. Cost to attend the show is $5 per person, and free for those under 18.

The show will feature all gauges of model and toy trains, with featured brands including Lionel, American Flyer, Marx, HO and more. This is the third year the Thanksgiving Train Show has been hosted in the region. More than 1,000 attendees are expected to visit; purchase, learn and enjoy toy and model trains at this year's show. Exhibitors will come from Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and as far away as California and Florida.

According to show organizer Joe Algozzini, the show provides an educational opportunity for train collectors, operators, and novices to learn about manufacturing, creating and designing custom pieces, insuring collectibles and adding that special item for their collection or layout. Algozzini also encourages families to visit, talk with the vendors and enjoy photos with Santa. Santa will be available for photos from noon until 1:00 p.m. on both days of the show.

The Lake County Fairgrounds are located at 889 S. Court St. in Crown Point, Ind. The Train Show is sponsored by the LCCA, CIC-TCA, TTOS and ITC.
